Shah Rukh Khan’s Passion for IPL: Juhi Chawla Reveals Interesting Insight

Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, Bollywood icons and co-owners of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team, have shared a close bond for years. However, watching an IPL match with Shah Rukh might not be the most relaxing experience, as Juhi recently disclosed.

Tension in the Air

During a Routes 2 Roots event in Mumbai, Juhi Chawla revealed that both she and Shah Rukh Khan get incredibly tense while watching KKR matches. She mentioned, “When our team plays, it is interesting to watch them and we all are highly tense.” Juhi added that Shah Rukh tends to vent his frustration at her when the team isn’t performing well, making it less enjoyable to watch the match together.

Superstar Duo and IPL Legacy

Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla’s association with the IPL goes back to the league’s inception in 2008 when they became co-owners of KKR. The team has seen its fair share of successes, clinching the IPL title twice in 2012 and 2014. Despite the pressure, their passion for the sport remains unwavering.

Glitzy IPL Opening Ceremony

The IPL season always kicks off with a star-studded opening ceremony, and this year was no exception. Held at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the ceremony featured electrifying performances by Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff. Musical maestros AR Rahman and Sonu Nigam also graced the stage, adding to the extravaganza.

Shah Rukh Khan’s Upcoming Ventures

While Shah Rukh Khan’s presence at IPL matches adds to the excitement, fans are eagerly awaiting his return to the silver screen. His last film, “Dunki,” directed by Rajkumar Hirani, saw him sharing the screen with Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal. Up next, he’s set to star alongside daughter Suhana Khan in “King,” marking her full-fledged feature debut. Additionally, fans can look forward to the much-anticipated “Tiger vs Pathaan” with Salman Khan.


As the IPL season unfolds, fans can expect more thrilling matches and star-studded moments both on and off the field. And while Shah Rukh Khan’s passion for KKR may lead to some tense moments, it only adds to the excitement of the game.
